Intro: G

G          C                G
The fog is lifting from the water.
    G         C               D     (Dsus4 D)
The bells are sounding on the boats.
   G    C         G                 Em
And our love is a monster plain and simple.
           G                  D                C
Though you weigh it down with stones to try to drown it,
   D
it floats.
   G
It floats.


G, riff


    G      C            G
The day of reckoning is coming
 G             C            D 
faster than anyone here realizes.
    G   C            G          Em 
And our love is like Jesus, but worse.
           G                D                   C 
Though you seal the cave up where you'd lain its body,
   D
it rises
   G   
It rises.


G, riff


G D C D G
I     
G                          D
keep waiting for our love to die.
      G             C            G             G/F#        Em
The machines by its bed dim and flicker, but it won't stay dead.
       G                 D                C          D
And it perks up when the nurses bring its medication by.


G D C D G
I       wish 
    G                            D
our love could go the way of all flesh.
             G                  C               G       G/F#        Em
But it's not right, and it's not nice to try to kill the same thing twice.
                    G              D             G
Would you pack your things, we are going to Marrakesh.
